Today’s topic is:  Least Favorite or Ugly Covers

Although we say we don’t like to judge a book by it’s cover, we all know we do as readers. There aren’t too many covers that I don’t like because I’m the kind of person who will usually go for the pretty covers over the ugly ones. If the cover isn’t appealing, I won’t read it. Or if it’s one of those books that has multiple editions all with different covers, I tend to go for the better looking cover. The only time I go with a more simpler cover would be because I was trying to save money.

Many books tend to have real life people on them. I do like a lot of these, but there are a lot out there that look like they were badly photoshopped.

I am definitely not a fan of movie covers. I prefer the original covers. I’m not a huge fan of holding random actors as I read. Sometimes I feel like they take away the from the book and ruin the feel. They become overpopulaized. It’s an even worse feeling when you enjoyed the books but the movie was a total bust.
